Jordan Almonds Origami Box Tutorial

ACraftyArab Jordan Almonds Origami BoxI recently went to an Arab wedding and realized that my favorite part of the wedding is seeing how the Jordan almonds are packaged.

 

I’ve gotten some gorgeous boxes made of mother of pearl, metal, porcelain, wood or fabric. I’ve received swan shaped boxes, boxes made to look like bags, heart boxes and one that looked like a wedding dress.

 

Today we celebrate the art of getting married by creating an origami box to hold the delicious treats before they are all gobbled up!

Turn it over so that other side is on top and do the same with the flaps at the back. The back should look exactly the same as the front.

When you have folded two flaps down, pull the other two to the side and they will fold down too.
